Peter Lehndorff will be October 7 Song & Story Swap guest

Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the Pioneer Valley
Folklore Society Song & Story Swap.

Saturday, October 7, 7:00 p.m. at the The Nacul Center, 592 Main St.,
Amherst, Mass.

Guest performer at the October 7 Song & Story Swap will be singer and
songwriter Peter Lehndorff.

Peter Lehndorff writes folk and jazz songs about everyday life -- some
funny, some serious, but all poignant and thought-provoking. His songwriting
talents gained notice with the release of his album Love on the Line on the
Signature Sounds label, and which featured help from such notable musicians
as Dar Williams and Jeff Pevar.

Several of his car-related tunes have been on NPR's "CarTalk" radio show and
his song, Peugeot appears on one of their compilation CDs. The roster of
artists he has shared the stage with includes Bill Morrissey, Robert Earl
Keen, Arlo Guthrie, and Tom Paxton.

Peter stopped performing for several years as his late wife Kathy battled
Huntington's Disease, the genetic brain disease that took the life of Woody
Guthrie. He continued writing songs and recording them in his attic. Music,
he says, is part of his therapy and part of his journey.

Back on stage now, Peter continues to entertain with side-splitting lyrics,
rousing guitar licks, and his own unique deadpan delivery. According to WWUH
in Hartford, "Lehndorff's not a wise guy, but a man with a keen sense of
what is both weird and touching in our shared human experience."

The Song & Story Swap is held on the first Saturday of each month, excepting
July and August, and is jointly sponsored by the Pioneer Valley Folklore
Society and the Nacul Center (http://www.nacul.com). Visit the Folklore

The Song & Story Swap is open to the public, free of charge with donations

stories and songs that are traditional, newly written, or of personal
experiences. You can tell, sing, or lead everyone in singing, or request a
song or story. Listeners are welcome.
